Club Team Trainings
Club Team Trainings are divided into a two phase program. Where we focus on Balance/Stability and Strength/Conditioning. During these training’s athletes will go through extensive injury prevention training and overall muscular development, to help with arm care and vertical mechanics. These are 30 minute training sessions in conjunction with each athletes’ practice time.
Small Group /
Small Group/Private Trainings are 1 hour training sessions designed for the volleyball athlete. In these training sessions, athletes will be pushed past their comfort level and will undergo strength, agility and mental toughness training. These training sessions are for the athletes that want to train like an elite athlete.
This year we are offering three months of summer programming.
May 30-June 29
Conditioning during the off-season is essential in order to develop an elite athlete's performance for peak season. These programs have been created to progressively increase an athlete's performance, built around their level.

In this program, each athlete will go through landing stabilization training. Our knees, feet and ankles go through an increased amount of pressure due to the impact on landing and directional change. Athletes will undergo strength training. In the strength training phase, each athlete will be taught how to produce power from a stagnant phase and how to produce power already in motion. Strength training helps; injury prevention, physical development, recovering more effectively, improves power generation, increases bone density and so much more. We also train fast and slow twitch muscle fibers. Fast-twitch fibers are specifically attributed to our ability to produce power, whereas slow twitch fibers attribute to our ability to not become fatigued during performance.
In the last two years of program development, we have been able to pinpoint which exercises create the highest desired results. Of the 100+ athletes that have participated in our small group vertical training programs, the average increase in one month is 1.81inches. Vertical increases ranging from 1-4 inches in a one month span. The athletes who have wanted to increase speed and agility, in one month, have more than doubled our platework speed; meaning they are responding faster.
**NEW THIS YEAR** Decision Response Training: This training allows the athlete to make quick decisions while in movement. This has been one of our most sought after add-ons. Athletes undergo reaction based training while solving mental puzzles. This is for the athlete that struggles to make quick decisions while on that court.
CLUB SEASON TRAININGS
This coming year we are so excited to announce a few new features, classes and opportunities that Power and Agility will be offering.
Over the last couple of months we have been testing out PowerCore systems with a few of our athletes. We are excited to officially announce that during your athlete’s Power and Agility month sessions, we will be moving Power and Agility to the court a handful of times during their practice slot. Head Trainer Taylor Porritt along with other members of our coaching staff that have specialized in the full mechanical breakdown of the athlete’s approach, landing mechanics, power and arm swing mechanics, will be coming to observe and offer individualized feedback with each athlete, in order to create the most use of their power. If during that practice we observe that an athlete needs more specialized training with their power we will be inviting them to come to a small group, PowerCore360 training session, where they will receive more one on one training in order to learn how to make the most out of their swing, power and explosive mechanics.
As for training during club season, our staff will be focusing on a three-phase program, explained below. We will also have several other offerings you can read more about in the chart below.
PHASE I: STABILITY
This is where we focus on arm care, injury prevention and landing mechanics.
PHASE II: STRENGTH
This primary focus will be on simple movements in order to increase power output.
PHASE III: AGILITY & PLAYMETRICS
This class focuses on directional change and power.
All club teams receive a minimum of 4 weeks (8 sessions) of team Power & Agility trainings included with their club membership. These trainings will take place directly before or after their team practices. Schedules for each team's trainings will be announced by December.
CLUB TEAM TRAININGS
Option to add-on Power & Agility training session with Friday Skills Clinics.
Again just like last year, we will have a Power and Agility Group Training Session as an available add-on in conjunction with our Friday Clinics. These are a wonderful opportunity to make the most out of your Friday Clinic. On the court they will be fine tuning their individualized skills and up in our training with our Power and Agility Staff we will be working on their Plyometrics, Power output and their Vertical and Landing Mechanics.

Drop in: $15/training
WE WILL CAP THESE SESSIONS OUT!
Our Small Group Trainings are 45 minute sessions designed for the volleyball athlete. In these training sessions, athletes will be pushed past their comfort level and will undergo Strength, Agility, Explosive Power Training, Recovery and mental toughness training . These training sessions are for the athletes that want to train like an elite athlete.
Last year our results within these sessions were mind-blowing. We had athletes increasing their vertical 1-4 inches per month. The athletes who worked with us through the season exceeded in every single area of their fitness goals that they personally set, when starting with us.
SMALL GROUP TRAININGS
Arm Care Clinics are available to all athletes and will focus on teaching proper arm care.
Multiple clinics will be offered throughout the season and an armband is INCLUDED in the cost of registration.

We will be teaching them techniques on building shoulder strength, safe at home techniques for your athletes proper shoulder injury prevention and we will be going through and teaching the proper shoulder recovery. EVERY athlete will also receive an armband, so that they can continue to implement everything they are taught, at home.
